Springfest takes off!

Not even snow showers can slow down the start of Springfest at UIS! One of the activities that kicks things off for this much-enjoyed week-long celebration is the Scavenger Hunt. Part of the hunt this year was to locate the Chancellor on campus and get a photo of at least three members of your team with her. Students are on a competitive timeline to locate as many items as possible in a short period of time and it was an unusual experience hearing the thunder of footsteps charging down the hall and into the Chancellor’s office between 9:30 and 11:00 on a Monday night. I wasn't that hard to find me working at my desk and, as you can see from this photo, it was a busy evening and a great opportunity to "meet and greet" some fun-loving students. Lots more fun to come throughout the week!
